    Essential Introduction
    B. Holy Echad Marriage & the Elohim Principle

    23. Holy Echad Monogamous Marriage

    23.1 We have so far made an in-depth study of the Mystical Marriage of Messiah (Christ) and have made a careful exegesis of what the Bible teaches about the estate of marriage (if you have been reading the linked articles).

    23.2 You will probably need to re-read The First in Your Life several times in order for all the material to sink in.

    23.3 Remember also that there are numerous additional resources on our Sex, Romance and Marriage page which you are also invited to take a look at if you do not know too much about the biblical basis of this subject matter.

    23.4 If you are still totally committed to a Messiah-centred life, to all truth, to overcoming the selfish, carnal, fleshy nature (putting it to death on the cross), are willing to give Yah'shua (Jesus) full control of your life, and totally trust the infallible Word of Elohim (God) - the Bible - and approach marriage as something very sacred and set-apart to Yahweh, then you are ready to move on in this study.

    23.5 If these things are not a reality in your life then you will not only have considerable difficulties as we probe deeper but you will almost certainly become hostile to this deeper scriptural exposition of Yahweh's heart.


    23.6 I am sure that some of you are wondering at this stage what the word echad means.

    23.7 What do we mean by Holy Echad Marriage?

    23.8 Echad is a Hebrew word meaning 'one' as in several people being of 'one' mind in unity, harmony and agreement.

    23.9 It always implies more than one unit, usually people.

    23.10 Thus we may speak of the Elohim-head or Godhead as being echad as there is more than one Person and yet they are also 'one'.

    23.11 When we say there is one (echad) Elohim (God) we mean that there is ONE POWER consisting of several powers in complete unity.

    23.12 In other words, echad means 'uni-plural' or 'many in one'.

    23.13 It does not mean that Elohim (God) is one Person as Unitarians, Oneness Pentecostals and many Messianics, Jews and Muslims teach for which there is a separate word, yachid, meaning 'one unit'.

    23.14 Rather, as the Shema states:

      "Hear, O Israel, Yahweh our Elohim ('the Lord our God'), Yahweh ('the Lord') is echad (one)!" (Dt.6:4)

    23.15 When we speak of echad marriage, we are speaking of the goal of complete unity and harmony between husband and wife (two-in-one) in the same way that there should be - and eventually will be - complete unity and harmony between Yah'shua and His allegorical Bride, the Messianic Community (Body/church), and as there already is between the different members of the Elohim-head (Godhead) (three-in-one), and as there should be between disciples of the Messiah.

    23.16 Thus Yah'shua (Jesus) prayed:

      "Now I am no longer in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to You.

      23.17 Holy Father, keep through Your name those whom You have given Me, that they may be one (echad) as We are [one (echad)]...

      23.18 I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word; that they all may be one (echad), as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one (echad) in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me.

      23.19 And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one (echad) just as We are one (echad): I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one (echad), and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me" (John 17:11,20-23, NKJV).


    23.20 It is the commitment of this ministry to prepare those coming to it for holy echad marriage as well as giving pastoral counsel to ensure that those marriages remain strong and vibrant in a world which seeks to destroy them.

    23.21 With divorce rates as high as 60% in the West and common law marriages (partnerships) failing at the frightening rate of upwards of 90% (because there are no marriage covenants involved), and with the statistics being little better in the assemblies and churches, clearly something is seriously wrong and fellowships need to rediscover the sound and true biblical roots of marriage.

    23.22 To this end you are now invited to make a study of another sermon series entitled, Holy Echad Marriage: The Mystery of Oneness (Part 1) and In Practice (Part 2) by clicking on the image below.

    23.23 When you have studied these two sermons you are invited back here to resume your study:
